At the Chicago Auto show Hyundai had their Zombie Apocalypse cars out again. This year one of the cars was a design that was first featured at Comicon last year. It’s an amazing design and will be featured on Walking Dead and inspires a real car that Hyundai is going to create. They are going to be selling a Walking Dead inspired car, but don’t get too excited. It has to be street safe you know so no knives, machine guns or Spikes, but I’m sure it’s still going to be Totally Awesome!
Hyundai took home the second-ever Driving Engagement Award from the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. The Walking Dead Chop Shop campaign was chosen as the most innovative social media campaign of 2013.
I feel that if I had this car I would be ready for Zombies on my street. As long as the booster seats still fit. And I know they do. Now I just need to work a little more on my pantry and perhaps a better lock on the front door.
Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop gives fans the opportunity to outfit their own zombie survival machine through an interactive app and accompanying website: walkingdeadchopshop.com. Fans start by choosing a Hyundai vehicle – an Elantra, Veloster Turbo or Santa Fe – then add armor, survival accessories and designs from a wide range of options, including nearly 300 different car parts and custom graphic decals created in collaboration with Robert Kirkman and comic book artists at Skybound.
Users are then able to share their creations with friends, get a survival score and test the vehicles out in scenarios inspired by the comic books. To date, over 190,000 Zombie Survival Machines have been created on the Chop Shop. Last year, the program also allowed fans to enter their designs into a contest where the winning design, selected by Kirkman, was built into a real car that Kirkman unveiled at New York Comic-Con.
Drive in style, safety and Demolition!
